Question AUTOFS problem in Centos 5

Hello Friends,

I'm getting some problem with autofs service in CentOS 5. I read man pages and some online documents about autofs and I did config as written but its not working for me. I think I am forgetting some critical step or... I don't know...

Here is my auto.master file.

/mnt	/etc/auto.misc
/net	-hosts
And auto.misc file contains...

cd		-fstype=iso9660,ro,nosuid,nodev	:/dev/hdc
/dev/hdc is mine DVD RAM drive.

And after inserting CD in drive, I do ls /mnt and I see nothing. I reload, restart autofs service but nothing happens. What should I do? Am I forgetting some step in this auto mounting process?

Please help.

The file system is mounted upon first use. Try cd'ing into the directory, or access a file you know exists.
